First Look: Harrison Ford as Col. Graff in 'Ender's Game' Adaptation
Time to meet Colonel Hyrum Graff. This must mean something is coming soon - a poster, a teaser, a trailer, more marketing, photos, something else. EW.com has unveiled a first look photo at Gavin Hood's Ender's Game sci-fi adaptation of Orson Scott Card's novel. They're adapting the movie as closely to the novel as they can, which is about training young kids in the future at a battle school where they become expert pilots. Colonel Graff, played by the one-and-only actor Harrison Ford, is assigned to watch over Ender, played by Asa Butterfield, possibly one of the greatest students to ever grace the zero-gravity halls of Battle School.
Here's the new photo via EW.com. I believe Graff is
talking yelling at Ender standing next to his friend Alai.
70 years after an alien war, an unusually gifted child is sent to an advanced military school in space to prepare for a future invasion. "The relationship between [Harrison] and Asa [Ender] was very close, but he didn't overly befriend him off the set. He helped Asa by allowing that slight sense of intimidation to be there," explains writer/director Gavin Hood. Ender's Game, based on Orson Scott Card's beloved 1985 novel of the same name, is written & directed by Gavin Hood (Tsotsi, Rendition, X-Men Origins) produced by Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci. It also co-stars Ben Kingsley, Hailee Steinfeld, Abigail Breslin and Viola Davis. Summit/Lionsgate will be releasing Ender's Game in theaters starting November 1st, 2013 late next year.
